An Introduction to Scoil San Nioclas
Scoil San Nioclás was built in 1958 to replace the old school which was in use since 1844. In 1983 a prefabricated classroom was added. In 1995 the school was extended and completely refurbished.
In 2011 a further classroom was added to the building. A school library was set up and the whole school, both inside and outside got a face lift. 2014 saw the addition of The Learning Lab. We now use this facility along with The Boost Room for group activities.
A playground was opened in 2015. This is a wonderful asset to our school. Little Stars, Stabannon Community Playschool, have also enjoyed the benefits of this amenity.
Around the school are spacious grass and tarmac areas which allow for a range of sporting activities to be played. The parish hall is across the road from the school and the school has full use of this building.

There are very good links established between Scoil San Nioclas and parents. Parents are encouraged to meet teachers at the parent/teacher meetings, which take place in the second term. Parents are also encouraged to meet teachers if they so wish to discuss any concern they might have about their child’s education. An appointment is made with the secretary and the teacher will meet the parent.
Parents are encouraged by the Principal and Staff to be involved in their child’s education. They do this in many ways in Scoil San Nioclás. Parents are encouraged to get involved in shared-reading with their children and also to supervise and check homework assignments. Parents are very active in this area and also in the area of sports where many mums and dads provide transport and support for their children at matches and competitions. Parents also provide help during preparation for sacramental celebrations-committees are set up annually by the parents of the children in 2nd & 6th class.
The Principal meets parents on an on-going basis also and promotes the school and its pupils when and where possible.
Parents also provide valuable help in the area of fund-raising.
